Lane 1 - Death and Taxes posts "Watch the Snow Swimming Championships. Finland has a new sport, and it’s really silly, possibly even sillier than pro mini golf and crab racing, which is a real thing, by the way. They’re calling it “snow swimming,” but it’s not: It’s crawling through the snow in a bathing suit while performing swim-like motions."

We’ll see Dom Joly, Donna Air, Linda Barker, Anthony Ogogo and Tina Malone jumping in at the deep end and learning how to dive under the watchful eye of Olympic Medallist Tom Daley."
Lane 3 - The Telegraph posts "Christian Sprenger providing an interesting test case for Australian swimming's new model. CHRISTIAN Sprenger provides an interesting test case for Australian swimming's new "team comes first" attitude. The finest breaststroker in the country, Sprenger is reluctant to extend his program at the world championships to include the 200m distance despite being a former world record holder in the event. Sprenger, 27, is more than capable of reaching a world title final over 200m but feels it could compromise his chances at 100m gold. While Australia prefer to have their best swimmers contest every event, the opportunity for elusive gold is expected to outweigh that notion."
Lane 4 - Scotsman posts "Olympic swimmer Ian Thorpe on getting back in the pool. We meet at his publisher’s London office. Thorpe is every bit the larger-than-life presence I expected, broad of shoulder and filling the doorway at 6ft 5in. He’s dressed in stylish grey and black, the trousers a complicated – and dare I say it, slightly “Aladdin-esque” – affair, pleated at the waist and pegged at the ankles. His T-shirt is a thing of wonder, constructed of form-fitting microfibre that accentuates his impressive musculature without sacrificing dignity. Presumably it’s all from Thorpe’s favourite designer Giorgio Armani."
Lane 5 - The Australian posts "Nightmare schedule deja vu for Coutts. AUSTRALIA'S Olympic star Alicia Coutts is facing the same horror schedule at this year's world championships that may have cost her a gold medal in Shanghai in 2011. The versatile Coutts, who won five medals at the London Games, had to swim the 100m butterfly final and 200m individual medley final virtually back-to-back in Shanghai and was touched out for the victory in both of them by a combined total of 0.17sec. Her two best individual events have again been programmed for the first two days in Barcelona in July and Coutts admitted her heart sank when she saw the schedule. "It was the same in 2011. They were one event apart," Coutts said."

Lane 8 - Statesman posts "Adrian erases 25-year-old pool record at Austin Grand Prix . Nathan Adrian got the Austin Grand Prix off to a stunning and stirring start by taking down the 25-year-old University of Texas pool record of Matt Biondi in the men’s 100-meter freestyle. “That’s one of the most epic records we had at the pool,” said Ricky Berens, who finished a distant second. Adrian, the 2012 Olympic gold medalist at that distance, was clocked in 48.32 seconds."
